When Should I Buy A New Stairlift?

If your stairlift is breaking down more and more often then it may be cheaper and more efficient to simply purchase a new one.

Senior Stairlifts, have a variety of stairlifts for you to chose from. We sell straight and curved stairlifts brand new depending on what you need and what suits the space you have best.

If you don’t want to pay full price for a stairlift that’s understandable, stairlifts can be expensive and if you are purchasing a second one the costs can add up.

You can apply for grants to help cover the cost of a stairlift or look for cheaper alternatives. Here at Senior Stairlifts, we sell reconditioned stairlifts that are more cost-effective.

A reconditioned stairlift is a stairlift that has been preowned. We take these stairlifts and repair and replace anything we think needs changing before reselling them.

All of our reconditioned stairlifts are 100% safe and we put them through rigorous testing to make sure they are as safe and as secure as one of our brand new stairlifts.

Depending on how long you plan on owning a stairlift, we also rent stairlifts. With a rented stairlift you simply pay monthly until you no longer need it, then one of our engineers will come and remove it for you.

A rented stairlift is a great option for someone who may not need a stairlift for long or wishes to try one out of a few months before deciding to purchase.
